Looking Deep Into our Milky Way Galaxy from Ojos Del Salar – All Sky and VR 360º Scene


| | | | | |


An all sky view and 360º Virtual Reality scene, features the path of Milky Way with its core shining high in the sky of Atacama Desert. This full dome mosaic comprises 27 still images photographed from Ojos Del Salar, two small lagoons standing close each other forming like a pair of eyes point high up. Located in the middle of nowhere, in Atacama Desert, they can be found almost 30km from San Pedro de Atacama, in the northern part of Chile. The rocky desert of Atacama, sometimes reminds me of the reddish martian soil. On July, in the Southern Hemisphere the core of Milky Way galaxy stands very high in the sky, touching the Zenith this time of the year. The center of the image features the dusty core of the galaxy, with a special guest visible, planet Jupiter is also there, shinning very close to Rho Ophiuchi colorful cloud complex. In the opposite direction, the faint band from Zodiacal light in crossing the entire half of the scene. In this full dome view, the small lagoon is visible in the right side of the celestial sphere, full of reflected stars, stands up in the scene like the shape of a crescent Moon. After the iconic unusual portrait showing what could be a big “Martian Eye” looking deep to our Milky Way Galaxy, published as APOD on April 2020, I decided to create a Virtual Reality 360º image of this same scene, which you can experience in full resolution using your desktop, or smartphone with gyroscope. A great “in loco” experience can be achieved if you wear a VR glasses.

PT: Um cenário All Sky e de Realidade Virtual 360º, apresenta o caminho da Via Láctea com o seu núcleo brilhando alto no céu do Deserto do Atacama. Este mosaico circular completo este mosaico compreende 27 imagens estáticas fotografadas a partir dos Ojos Del Salar, duas pequenas lagoas próximas uma da outra, formando como que um par de olhos apontados para o alto, algures em pleno deserto de Atacama, a cerca de 30 km de San Pedro de Atacama, na região norte do Chile. O deserto rochoso e avermelhado do Atacama, por vezes relembra-me o solo marciano. Em julho, no Hemisfério Sul, o núcleo da Via Láctea encontra-se muito alto no céu, tocando o Zénite nesta época do ano. O centro da imagem mostra o núcleo empoeirado da galáxia, com um convidado especial visível, o planeta Júpiter também lá está, brilhando muito perto do complexo de nuvens coloridas de Rho Ophiuchi. Na direção oposta, a faixa tênue da luz zodiacal atravessa toda a metade esquerda do céu. Nesta visão “fulldome”, a pequena lagoa é visível no lado direito da esfera celeste, cheia de estrelas refletidas, revela a forma de uma lua crescente. Depois do icônico retrato incomum que mostra o que poderia ser um grande “olho marciano” olhando profundamente para nossa Via Láctea, publicado como APOD em Abril de 2020, decidi criar uma realidade virtual 360º dessa mesma imagem, que o leitor pode experimentar em resolução total usando o seu desktop ou smartphone com giroscópio. Uma ótima experiência “in loco” pode ser alcançada se usar óculos de realidade virtual.
